SEVIRA at EURegionWeek

Regional and cross-border cooperation strengthens ties between people from different countries. This is a good opportunity to get to know each other and make a common cause. When it comes to environmental protection, cooperation is essential as water or air pollution knows no boarders. One of the sessions at the EURegionWeek was devoted to citizens’ involvement in building environmentally friendly cross-border regions. SEVIRA project team was invited to share experience.

On September 21, an Ecotrip took place along the Southern shore of the Gulf of Finland and meeting with local residents, dedicated to celebrating of European Green Belt Days – this year is a 30th anniversary of the European Green Belt international initiative.

Russian and Finnish specialists in hydrological monitoring conducted research on Seleznevka and Buslovka rivers. This was the second joint monitoring of the SEVIRA project organized to share knowledge. The first trip was hosted by the Finnish side this May in Lappeenranta. Hydrologists took samples for further laboratory analysis and estimated the discharge – the volume of water flowing per unit time on the river section. This indicator is necessary to analyze the concentration of pollution in the river.
